French and Saunders has now completed it’s sixth season, and in my opinion there could not be a negative comment made about any sketch, episode or season of this show. Ever.
Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders are both accomplished comediennes independently, but when you bring them together there’s no stopping them. There’s obviously a strong friendship between them, and it shows in each of their sketches.
Including brilliant movie spoofs (including, most recently, Kill Bill, Cold Mountain and Troy) and ridiculous musical numbers, French and Saunders has a basic background storyline which fans out into gratuitous parodies of the British, Hollywood, musicians, actors, farmers, teenagers, the elderly, mothers… the list goes on. Chances are, no matter who you are, French and Saunders has had at least one good stab at your lifestyle.
I hope they stick together for a long, long time. The comedy scene - British and worldwide - would crumble without the presence of Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders’ comedy duo.
